Summer Time Cupcakes

3 Jul

If there’s only one thing that can instantly make my day better, its CUPCAKES!!!

Here’s a sunshiney recipe I made a few weeks ago. Share with the people you love 😉





  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add lemon peel and vanilla and mix well.
  2. Combine dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream. The batter will be thick.
  3. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups with 1/4 cup of batter.
  4. Bake at 350º for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  5. Cool 10 minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely.
  6. For frosting, cream butter and sugar in a small mixing bowl. Add lemon juice, vanilla, lemon peel and milk. Beat until smooth.
  7. Frost cupcakes when completely cooled.

Enjoy with a tall glass of iced tea or, my favourite, a super citrusy mojito!
